Abstract : Considering the anticipated reduction in oil available to about 440,000 bpd from mid-1973 levels, an assessment of the extent to which rapid adoption of energy conservation measures might help to relieve the crisis can be very important. Unfortunately, little has been said in the public literature about how far each conservation measure might go towards reducing expected energy shortages. Neither has there been much discussion of the potential aggregate effect on the energy shortage that might result from vigorous adoption of energy conservation policies. An outline of the dimensions of short-term energy conservation actions is presented.
